The ISPO Award starts its new edition. The application period started one 1 October and ends on 6 December 2019. This earlier application deadline had already proved its worth in the previous year.

Laureates benefit from award effect during new sports season

With the ISPO Award, the internationally leading sports business network ISPO honours the highlight products of the sports industry every year in different segments: from health & fitness to outdoor and snow sports. The ISPO Award stands as a seal for innovation, quality and functionality.

The winners benefit from the award effect: the specialist retail orients itself towards the prize winners and prefers to consider them. Consumers use the award as a buying argument. The award-winning product thus becomes the highlight of the sports season.

International Jury of Experts Evaluates Products

The international and neutral jury of experts made up of media representatives, retailers, athletes, consumers and material experts reviews several hundred submissions according to certain criteria, such as design, function, sustainability and innovation

"It is the trendsetting, innovative products in particular that carry the sporting goods market forward – and they often find a special way to make sports more enjoyable. This is one aspect we pay special attention to", says David Badalec, responsible for the ISPO Award.

Early Bird Bonus Until 6 November

Companies can benefit from special early-bird rates when submitting their products by November 6, 2019.

Exhibitors at ISPO Munich and ISPO Beijing pay only an additional 125 Euro (instead of 325 Euro) per product submission with the early bird rate, and 200 Euro (instead of 450 Euro) with the regular rate.
